THE TURN OF LIFE A Time When Women Are Susceptible to Many Dread Diseases Intelligent Women Prepare for It. Two Relate their Experience. The 'chn (re of llfe"is the mott critical period of a woman's existence, and the anxiety felt by women aa It drawa near U not without reason. Erery woman who DeglecU the care of her health at this time in vites disease and pain. i When her system is In a deranged condition, or she is predisposed to apoplexy, or congestion of any organ, the ten dency is at this period likely to become active and with a host of ner vous irritations, make life a burden. At this time, also, cancers and tumors are more liable to form and begin tbeir destructive work. Such warning symp toms aa sense of suffo cation, hot flashes, head aches backaches, dread . of Impending evil, timid ity, sounds in the ears, palpitation of the heart, ' iparks before the eyes, Irregularities, constipa tion, variable appetite, weakness and fnqule ' tude, and dizziness, are promptly heeded by in- '.' telllgent women who are approaching the period in life when woman's great change - may be expected.

"Let Not Thy Lett Ha ad Know What Thy Rlsrht Ha ad Doeth," Espe cially When the Left is a Bit Cranky. Some ef the most lovable and best people In the world are cranky, and a "Icetle" hard to manage, particularly when you want to do them good. Then It Is that justifiable and righteous artfulness may be resorted to. Aa, for Instance, In the follow ing case given by a devoted wife and mother, in Iowa: "This spring my daughter, who Is a teacher, became convinced that coffee was doing her harm, as it caused distress and belching after eating. She felt that she needed a warm drink In the morning but disliked hot water or milk. Then our dully use of Grape-Nuts suggested Postum. "For some time my husband, who has been a user of coffee from his youth, had been more than usually troubled with sleeplessness snd nervousness and I felt that Postum might be helpful to- him. The question was, how to persuade them to lesve Oft drinking coffee and try Postum, against 'which they had repeatedly ex pressed prejudice. I resolved to try an ex periment and make the test. "Without acquainting them with the fact I made Postum according to directions, but added a teaspoonful of good coffee. I poured It out with some misgivings, but was delighted to see that no one could tell from Its appearance that it was not rich, strong ooffee. Its use was continued for a week with the coffee addition, then that was gradually withdrawn, until only the pure Postum remained, and atlll the change had not been detected. "Two things were very noticeable, how ever, j that my daughter had begun to rapldlya Improve In health, her lspepsia left, nd my husband was enjoying sweet, refreshing sleep. "When I ventured to tell them what I had done, he asked for a return to the coffee, and I gladly made It for him; but one day satisfied him, the old sleeplessness cam back and he told me lie liked the postum better. So we have used It ever since1 to the benofit of the whole family." Name given by Postum Co.,' Battle Creek, Mich. Look I each package for the famous UiUS book "The Koad to Wellville."

" I advise every woman at this period of life to take your medicine and write you for ad vice.'' Mrs Lizzie Hinkle, Bulem, Ind. What Lydia E.

The first of these he offered at the Boyd theater last even ing, "We Are King." This romantie comedy-drama has been Improved since last seen here by the omission of the prologue. the explanatory remarks br.:;5 Incor porated Into the first act, and rnu-h time for the necessary action of the plar being thereby gained without any serious loss to Its sequence as a story. The play, which Is well known, has much merit from a dramatic standpoint. and serves Mr. Whiteside splendidly as a means for his power as a romantic actor. Known so long as a devotee of the classic drama. It was something of a shock to friends ho had learned to admire him In the heavier roles, and to think of him as Ham let, for example, to undertake to adjust themselves to seeing him as the hero of a romantic play. But he has shown him self capable of doing the lighter work. and doing It as thoroughly as he ever did his more ambitious undertakings. As Gustavus Venner, the penniless adven turer, and as Hector, king of Kahnberg, he Is charming. His voice, manner, every thing unite to make the part Ideal, and he carries off his every scene with an easy nonchalance that la rather a part of the character than the cock-sure attitude of the actor who knows Just how the play is going to end. Moreover, he has injected a large part of his Deraonalitv Into the role, a quaint, pungent humor his per sonal friends have known, but of which the public has had little chance to Judge because of the unremitting seriousness of his efforts as an actor, Miss Douglass, who Is Mr. Whiteside's leading woman this season, brings to the part charms of person and manner suf llclent to make It a most Interesting cre ation. The rest of the company Is good and the performance Is excellent In every regard. 'TV e Are King" will be given again this evening and on Wednesday evening. On Tuesday evening and at the Wednesday matinee Mr. Whiteside will play "David Garrlck's Love," preceding this with a one-act play, "Jewels of Fire, Vaudeville at the Orpheum. One of the most startling of sensational perrormances heads the list of acts offered at the Orpheum theater for the coming week. The performance of the Stones ex eels all qf the many vaunted exhibitions of looping loops, looping gaps, riding spt rals and the like as far as an arc light exceeds a tallow dip. A sober recital of facts is strong enough to convince anyone of the positively dangerous character of the act, and Its hair-raising nature. A huge globe of steel bars Is erected on the stage. This Is sixteen feet In diameter. Inside a man and woman ride an or dinary bicycle, up and down the sides, around and around, one over and then under crossing and recrosslng each other's path, and then In opposite direc tions. Finally, they ride In pursuit, up and down the sides of the globe in the dlxxlest of races. The climax of the affair Is the Introduction of a motorcycle on which the man makes the most sensational flight yet offered. Turning the power on until the wheel has attained a terrific speed he steers it straight up the side of the globe, and over, and over he goes, until he has completed the circuit twelve times. Then he slackens the rush of his machine, checks it down' td a standstill, and bows to the spectators who have watched him, breath less and almost pulseless. It is by far the most thrilling undertaking ever yet devised to tempt death, and more than deserves the name given it by the bill, "hasardous." Aside from this the bill contains features of much Interest. The Howard brothers play the banjo as only they can, and add to the cleverness of their musical accomplish ments the faculty of Juggling with the in struments, playing with them as club Jug glers do and performing well known airs at the same time, keeping both air and time correctly. Mexias and Mexlas are a clown and a dog, who do a very Interesting lot of stunts and some comic pantomime. Linden Beckwlth Is a beautiful woman with a beautiful voice, but she sacrifices some of the latter In the arrangement she has adopted for exploiting the former. Her Idea Is unique and quite fetching In Its way. One soon forgets the faces of ths three Macartes In watching their graceful movements aa they dance, walk ths tight wire and dangle from trapeses. They are good all-around Workers in their line. Emma Francis and her two Arabs fur nish several surprises and finish a whirl wind act amid a storm of applause. Mr. and Mrs. Edward Esmonds and Mr. J. 8. Staff enact a pleasing little comedy, cast on conventional lines, and the pictures are amusing. Two large audiences were pres ent yesterday to witness the bill. "I'nder Two Flags" at the Bnrwood. The best performance of "I'nder Two Flags" ever given by the Woodward Stock company was that offered at the Burwood last nigni. it neia tne attention of arr audlence as large as the theater would ac commodate, and deserved in every way the compliment thus bestowed on It. In pro ducing the piece Director Long has happily oast his company, and the parts are all well played. Miss Lang Is the Cigarette and Mr. Morrison the Bertie Cecil. On them devolves the chief Interest of the ac tion of the play, and they hold the honors well. Mr. Owen gives his customary splendid performance aa Chateauroy, and Mr. McKee and Mr. Simpson are very good as Rockingham and Rake. Miss Hill has the role of Lady Venetla and enacts ths part In tier best manner. The piece is staged perfectly, snd the Intensely thrilling situations, particularly the' sandstorm In ths desert snd the ride of Cigarette up the sides of Chelula gorge, are all set out with great strength. The bill will be on aH week with the customary matinees. "Human Hearts" at the Krngr. This well known "heart Interest" drama opened at the Krug yesterday to the cus tomary Sunday attendance. It haa changed In nothing and Is being presented with great force by the company having It In hand. Some local Interest Is sfforded by the fact that the leading woman of the company Is sn Omaha girl, and was gradu ated from the high -school but a little while ago. She is Gretchen Buns, known on ths stage as Oretchen Sherman. The engage ment ends tonight eeuvral Clark Dying. NEW YORK, Oct. 8.-Oeneral William Thomas Clark, only surviving adjutant general and chief of staff of General Grant s army of the Tennessee, Is dying from cancer In St. Luks's hospital. He was brought from his borne In Washing ton, D. C, to this city two weeks ago In the hope that an operation would save Ins life. His wife, three daughters snd son ac companied him. Dr. B.

PROTECTING DOCuwitNIS FROM FIRE. Lancaster Count) r.aranes raying far Treatment of Drasr Fiend by Committing Hint 'as Insane Person. (From a Start Correspondent.) LINCOLN, - Oct. 8. 8peclal.) State Su perintendent McBrlen believes that school authorities throughout the state can profit ably give teachers leave of absence to at tend the state meeting of superintendents and principals, which is to be held in the city October 12 to 14. That Is the policy adopted by the school board at Bruno, Butler county, where the superintendent delivered sn address last week, and he commends the practice, believing that it will result In a better equipment for the pedagogues and thereby bring a good re-J turn to tne patrons of tne scnooi in auuea efficiency. Fir nisk on State Documents. Auditor Searle Is about to let contracts for the installation of steel fixtures In the big record vault of his office in which are kept the most valuable and Important rec ords of the state government. The present shelves snd cases are of pine and would. In the event of fire, be liable to Ignition from the heat of ths walls. To that ex tent steel is expected to prove safer, since the records and papers will have an ad ditional protection. One of the great dangers Is of spontaneous combustion within the vault. A large vent pipe In the roof of the vault would provide a draft for an Inclpjent blaze, which would destroy everything In the vault as long as ths pine shelves are retained. May Go on Ballot. Deputy County Attorney Tyrrell has ren dered an opinion to the county clerk, hold ing that the names of candidates for the county commissioners may go on the bal lot. He believes that the commissioner law, because of Its defects, applies only to Douglas county. County Escapes raying. Through the action of the Lancaster County Insanity commission In commit ting Alfred It. Simmons, a drug fiend, fur Insanity, the county will save the expense of his treatment. Such In effect is the holding of Attorney General Brown, to whom the question was submitted by Su perintendent Greene of the Lincoln Hospital for Intone, who said that the man was not Insane, but merely suffering from the effects of the excessive use of narcotics. He luid refused to receive the man until the question could be determined. Sim mons will be taken to the hospital for treatment. The attorney general held that the officials cannot go back of the return made by the County Insanity commission. Making Room for Them. The shipment of patients to the Norfolk Institution has made more room at the Lincoln Hospital for the Insane for per sons committed under the new dipsomaniac law. Prior to the completion of the new buildings at Norfolk the. Lincoln hospital was so badly overcrowded that many of the Inmates were forced to sleep In the halls, which made conditions dangerous. Some dipsomaniacs had been received, but the officials at the head of the Institution did not encourage county authorities to send them. Now, however, that some of the Insane patients have been taken to Norfolk, a considerable number of dipso maniacs can be received. The number of inmates hovers a little below the 600 mark at the present time. It Is stated that there Is a disposition In many of the counties to make use of the law In committing drunkards who have be come chronic nuisances. The few months which the statute has been In operation has raised some novel questions as to Its scope, but none more so than that brought to light In Webster county where the officials have sent a dipsomaniac over the protests of his relatives, who pledged them selves that he would not be permitted to become a nuisance. The man Is now at the state Institution being treated. The officials of the institution say that these patients are given the most modern treatment and it Is believed that In most Instances it will be successful. The men under treatment are allowed liquor at the start, but the quantity Is gradually dimin ished as their craving for it is conquered by treatment. No attempt is made to cut the supply off at once for some of the pa tients wouldy become raving maniacs with out the stlmulsnt to which they have been accustomed. Want Kama for Park. The members of the recently appointed commission to control the new park east of the city In the valley of the Antelope creek are having a difficult time choosing an appropriate name. Some of the local friends of Mr. Bryan, who has contributed a portion of the tract, are of the opinion that It can very appropriately be named after him, but there are many republicans who are averse to such a designation. Now In order to avoid showing any discourtesy to the distinguished cltisen the commission Is discussing the feasibility of naming it after some great man who Is dead. No Beasoa (or Haste. In a statement made public today, J. L. Pierce, deputy state auditor Ir charge of In surance, says licenses held by New York life Insurance companies enabling them to do business In Nebraska will not be re voked before the result of the Investigation board In New York Is known. While policy holders of this state are entitled to proteo. tlon, he sees no reason for haste. Equal l.ftsf. Convention. TABLE ROCK, Neb., Oct. 8.-(8peelal.)
